Oh, and ‘Happy Birthday’ for today, Chris!
Way to start the day: Toast is a pretty decent way to start the day, with tea or coffee.
Skatepark: Brackla grindbox = Perf.
Song to listen to when skating: Nothing whilst skating, but before the sesh I like to feel IRON like a LION in ZION!
Skate video: “First Blood” filmed and edited by Christian Hart.
Skate section: John Rattray – “H’min Bam” or “Waiting For The World”, both usually make me want to skateboard.
Movie: “Anchorman” and “Hot Rod” are supper baddasss.
Band: Bob Dylan
Album: “The Stone Roses”
Person: All my friends.
Material Possession: Skateboard.
Thing about life in Coychurch: Well it’s usually mistaken for a quiet, small village full of old retired people, but it can get pretty rough at times. There’s been a few stabbings in the past, but at the same time it’s got nice fields, woods and rivers near it, which was good for growing up and is good for taking the dog for a walk – you just got to watch your back!
Local slang phrase: “Sappanninn?”
None skating pass-time: The majority of the time college, but the occasional game of golf or snooker is pretty safe.
Welsh skater: Josh Perrett when he can be arsed.
Event: Both War of the Roses and War of the Thistles were tight.
Skate trip to date: The first Barca trip was so funny but had one of the best days of my life on the last East trip to Sweden – got to drive a speedboat, jump off cliffs and have a BBQ on a remote little island in the middle of nowhere with the sun shining. An amazing day!
Time in your life: Probably the first time I went abroad, was to America, just remember it was amazing to get out of Britain and see a new country. Made me want to one day travel around all the seven continents of the world.
Special move in a game of SKATE: Fakie heelflip.
YouTube clip: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qATftSlEhY – Ricky Longcocks The Rec edit, haha.
Memory from last years Emerica tour: Kid Rock punching our van, or Nicky punching some dude, haha.
Quote from the Emerica tour: “FING I LIKE ‘BOUT PUTOR…”
Disturbing experience: The other week my dog bit a fresh cows turd, was very disturbing.
Tip to the reader: Take it easy, and don’t eat turd.
